What is the legal size restriction for golf drivers?

Woods are so-called, because traditionally they had a club head that was made from hardwood. The change to stronger materials has allowed the design of the modern woods to incorporate significantly larger heads than in the past.

Due to the increase in club head size, the USGA in 2004 created a new stipulation ruling for the size of the club head. The legal maximum size of a wood was determined to be 460 cubic centimeters (460cc).

Most club manufacturers’ matched wood sets include 1, 3 and 5 numbered woods, with a 7 usually as a option.

Woods generally fall into two classes, drivers and fairway woods, with a traditional set of 14 clubs comprising a driver, two fairway woods (3 and 5), ten irons and a putter.

Many modern sets will include hybrid clubs, which combine some of the characteristics of a wood and an iron, to replace the 5 wood and and others.
